. president obama told voters back in october that the sequester would not happen, but as it is about to become a reality, the president is calling on congress just a few minutes from now to delay those massive cuts. joining me now for our daily fix chris caliz sdmr a and managing editor of post politics.com, and nbc's capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. first to you, chris. it seems as though the president is trying one last time, perhaps it's not the last time, to take it to congress. is this going to work? >> i think what he saw, andrea, was this expectation that we had a couple of months ago, honestly, that while they would never let the sequester happen, it's this kind of across the board cut that cuts domestic, that cuts defense spending, and that politicians don't want this on either side. i think what the president and his senior team realized as well, republicans may not want it, but they seem okay to let it happen. they don't have to vote. nothing has to happen. it just -- the date comes, and the sequester happens. i think this is an attempt to say, look, we don't wa

not mean that a deal can pass the house, and that's the fundamental problem here. president obama does not have a foil on the republican side. he does not have someone that he can deal with. mitch mcconnell maybe, but, remember, mitch mcconnell is up for re-election and is worried about a primary in 2014. you know, when we talk about the possibility of a big deal, i think boehner has been weakened by what happened with the fiscal cliff. mcconnell, i don't think, is fundamentally predisposed to do anything. particularly if it includes raising tacks. so who does he make a deal with? who can deliver the votes? >> and in fact, the senate democrats who are talking about the republicans in the senate who now are a little frightened by the election results and perhaps are looking for ways to come up with solutions, they know that the problem is, mike allen, in the house. the other thing, of course, that's going to be very emotional and send very strong signals is the presence in the chamber of all of these victims, from gabby giffords to the parents from chicago with the first lady. all of th
